Well i've never had frogs and bats for lunch but i had goat meat few Easter Sundays ago. Well this time, Goat meat really tastes like chicken meat. It's soft and white. Although i never thought i was eating Goat meat that time, but i didn't feel nauseous after. lol! How about you, do you eat Goat meat? I just asked because i'm not really sure if it's common in your country.

Hello mod star. I have never eaten goat meat in my life until now and i don't think i will eat some any time soon. I have, however eaten frog legs a few years back and they tasted like chicken so they were quite good.

Ah so i was right. My impression about frog legs is that they do taste like chicken eventhough i've never tasted it yet. May i ask why you don't want to eat goat? I mean on what reasons?

i have also tried partaking of frog legs years ago. they tasted good, yes, i agree with you on that, elitess. however, i hope that you will try eating some goat meat, too. goat meat is good for our health. this is among the few meats around which is beneficial for our health.

Rosdimy made mention that it's bad for people with hypertension. So, careful with that.

I do eat goat meat and I like the taste. In my country goat's meat is usually cooked in curry or served as soup. Even though the meat is nice it is not as popular as beef or chicken. There is no stigma over it. Many people are afraid to eat it because it can raise blood pressure. Those suffering from hypertension are advised against eating goat's meat. My first cousin, who had hypertension, passed away less than 12 hours after eating it at a festival. all the best, rosdimy

I really don't eat goat meat by choice but i can. But when you mentioned about curry, i'm pretty sure it tastes good. Are you from Malaysia or Indonesia? Because from what i know, Malaysia makes great curry meals.

yes, modstar, we eat goat meat, too. we were so used to eating some goat meat anytime that we feel like it since childhood. goat meat is good for the body. it is known to be good for our health. our old folks are aware of the health benefits that they can get from partaking of goat meat. (i have already forgotten how goat meat is called in english so, let us just stick to calling it this way). like it makes the body strong and free of the aches of old age. this is the main reason why old folks always inquire if there is food available which is cooked from goat meat.

Goat meat (otherwise known as Mutton) is a common dish here in Singapore as we are a multi-racial country. Many people do enjoy mutton soup and the meat here. However, I don't like it at all. Just the smell of the mutton (be it cooked or raw) is enough to turn me off the dish, and not to even try the meat. It stinks, and it has a strong meat stench to it that it takes newbies to the meat a lot of stomach courage to even try the dish. Can mutton even taste like chicken meat? That is a bit of surprise to me that mutton is soft and white. Lol. Are you sure you are not eating chicken meat and somehow get lied to that it's mutton? That is because mutton being a red meat, can never become white no matter how long or which method one use to cook the meat. I do believe that you are just eating chicken meat! I love frogs! Hehe.. their meat is really tender and is often tasteless unless you mix it and stir fry the meat with some other ingredients. If not, it's just tasteless!

It is interesting the different words used in different countries. Here in Canada, "Mutton" is a term used for full grown sheep meat, as opposed to young (less than 1yr old) sheep meat, which is called "Lamb". Whereas you call goat meat "Mutton". Eating of Lamb here in Canada is on the uprise because of changing flock management practices. Most of us now raise our sheep indoors or partially indoors, for 2 reasons. To reduce predator loss by wolves and coyotes, and for the taste difference. Canadians are known to dislike strong flavours, unlike most other coutries that relish in strong tastes. In feeding the sheep more hay and grain, instead of pasture (green grass), the flavour is now very mild and more palatable to Canadian consumers. The Lamb meat is white, tender and very mild without any 'stink' at all any more.

[b] Modstar[/b], Sorry for the super duper late response! I was just too busy nowadays to even Mylot! Lol, now that is a term totally foreign to me! We have never heard of this dish Caldereta here in Singapore! But, from the way you are describing the dish, I have no doubt in my mind that it is delicious! Especially so when it looks and tastes exactly like chicken! This just goes to show that no matter how stenchful a meat might be, when cooked properly, it will still taste good! I must really try that dish one of these days (if like what you say, there is no stench!) Ahh~ That must be real embarassing for you! Don't you feel kind of foolish when they announced that all of them knew that it was mutton all along and you are the only one that is caught unaware? I sure do not want to be caught in that situation as it is usually super awkward. Lol~ Happy Mylotting ~Angelia~

I don't eat goatmeat. It's not common, neither uncommon but I do think it is restricted to a number of people. I never had goat meat or sheep meat, and neither do I eat meat of young animals. I used to be a vegetarian but I had a hard time keeping it up because there are so may products out there that have meat or other pieces of an animal in it. Even jelly has pig bones in it, etc. So now I do eat meat, but only a little and preferbly biological meat of which you know the animals have had 'a good life'.

Yup, we do eat goat's meat like my lil' sis had responded. It's common here in our country. Goat's meat is called mutton. I love mutton curry, especially cooked in kurma. Mutton can have a strong smell if it's not properly prepared, that's why not many people like it. But above all, I still love beef the most. Eaten stir fried frogs with chilli & also venison but nothing beats beef, yummy

Don't you know that goat meat or sheep meat is the cleanest meat ever? No cholesterol on it. First class meat that is why it is expensive compared to cow's meat. For me I would rather select first[to eat] goat meat that other foods in the table. Try to research it in the internet.

I've eaten goat meat several times...in fact when i was a child my parents and I raised goats and other animals, I was allowed to have one of each animal as a pet and the rest were food for the family....Goat is very good when its cooked right, however could make you very ill if the hair touches the meat. I remember a particular time a friend of my moms had her children living at our house for some odd reason and mom had some goat chops soaking in vinager wash in the refridgerator....(we had some for dinner) that was left over but not cooked, her friends daughter came home and asked if she could cook more of those "pork chops", my mom told her that we didn't have any pork chops, but she still insisted on eating the "pork chops" mom let her cook them and after she ate them told her she just ate goat meat (something she said she would never do) at first she looked devistated, but then said 'that was good think i'll have more....we all laughed and joked with her about it for the longest, but she even decided that it wasn't all that bad either....the vinigar wash takes the game taste out of the meat....

Goat meat is very popular in our country. We used to eat often, but few years back with the declaration of results of latest research that red meat is not good for heart and goat meat being a red meat, we minimised eating. We started eating chicken more as it's white meat and reduced the consumption of goat meat though we relished it a lot.

Ooh, I love Kaldereta. I'm not sure how else goat's meat is called. Is it mutton, veal, venison???? Help me out. :-D Anyway, I love goat's meat but it depends on how it's being done and who prepared it. I'm kind of O.C when it comes to cleanliness because my tummy gets easily upset. There's another receipe where they use the intestine I think. I don't like it. But they said goat's meat is one of the healthiest meats because of it's diet which is mainly grass.

Hotdog might as well be it. Yuck! haha. Imagine eating a red version of Moochie. Dairy farms feed cows with so many things lately. So grass is just like part of the diet. I don't know with really big goat's farms, but as far as I've seen with our own farm-grown ones, we just let them chomp off grasses and leave them alone. By the way, I live with chickens, goats, a cow, 5 dogs that haven't taken a bath since they were puppies.
